It's green.

Yes it is!  This is the container for Greenhouse Gas Inc.

So, let's ignite the future!!

The basic green was a mixture of a Badger airbrush green and the black craft paint.  As always, those flowed very nicely across the wooden surface.

Since I was working quickly with the big brushes, I was able to wet blend lighter colors into the mix right on the surface.

I splashed some dirty darks over the ventilation grates.

Now for some weathering on the outer walls of the container.  The large, soft brushes were fantastic for pulling the color up along these walls.

The doors got the same treatment.

Most of the dark/light contrast would be achieved by placing these darker weathering colors in the recesses.  I didn't want the green to get to bright, and that's what would happen if I just kept highlighting it.

These darker, grimy colors would set up the lighter rust colors very nicely.

Just about ready for that rust color!

That is placed in the deepest recesses for accents.

It's also placed along the walls.  Not too much, since the big logo and the smaller freehand is not in place yet!

The rust effects on the doors are enhanced to match the exterior.

Stay tuned for the final phase of the logo!

Take Caution!

Well, not really!  It's just time to paint some containers!

I used the black craft paint as I usually do in this stage, since it flows very well over the wood texture.

I painted the inside a few different shades of grey...

And even put a bit of rust and grime in there just to make it more interesting.

That's plenty.  Since it's very dark inside the interior, I boosted the colors a bit.

Now for the same treatment on the rig.  I mixed in some brown craft paint with the rust and black.

There were a lot of places to hit on the undercarriage.

These views of the palette should give you a good idea of the color mixes.

Since I was using the craft paint and working quickly, I could do some wet blending right on the surface.

Once all that dried, I hit a few spots with very intense oxidation.

Nothing Sci-fi is complete without caution stripes!!

A touch of weathering, and you're good to go!

Stay tuned for the container next.
